3 Things We Learned From the Mercedes-Benz GLT Pickup Truck Teaser


Mercedes-Benz just released the teaser of its upcoming pickup truck called the “GLT.” Although the video only gives us a glimpse of the Mercedes-Benz GLT, it already shows us a lot of hints about the specs of the auto.

Check out the three things we are expecting from the upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLT pickup truck:

1. Design

The start of the teaser reveals that the snout of the GLT is very sporty in appearance. The slope of the roofline also gives it an aggressive shape. Then everything is accentuated by the signature body lines of Mercedes-Benz. The front of the auto certainly shares many elements with the SUVs of the three-pointed star brand.

It should be noted though that the unit shown in the video is the “Vision” or concept form of the Mercedes pickup truck. So the production model might have some tweaks in its exterior that are different from it. Nevertheless, the production unit will definitely get many elements from its concept model.

2. Capacity

The GLT shares the same platform with the Nissan Navara. Therefore, expect the two to have almost the same hauling capabilities and both should have the same passenger seating capacity.

Like the Navara, the GLT is designed for off-roading and in carrying around heavy cargo. However, similar to the Navara, the GLT carries the design language that defines its brand.

3. Unveiling

The end of the trailer indicates the live world premiere of the Mercedes-Benz GLT. According to the video, the pickup truck will be unveiled on October 25, 2016 in Stockholm, Sweden.


We are yet to discover the engine trims available in the GLT. However, it is most likely that it will have the same inline-four and V6 engines offered by Mercedes SUV units.

Spy Video Teases 2017 Peugeot 3008

As we’re waiting for the official presentation of the 2017 Peugeot 3008, we may have to content ourselves with a spy video released on video sharing platform YouTube. There is not much to see, but better this than nothing, right?

The video shows the production-ready Peugeot 3008 passing by in a fleeting moment of ecstasy for those waiting for its final release. The low-resolution video didn’t reveal anything in terms of how the car would look like up front, but it did give us a clear glimpse of how attractive this is from the back.

First, let’s talk a bit about the front. It has a considerably different façade from the other cars churned out by the brand. It features an aggressively styled grille with the company’s lion badge at the center. On the side, it has slim headlights on the wide front bumper finished with the silver faux bash plate.

Because of such features, experts are pointing out to the possibility that the new 3008 might be taking after the recently previewed Peugeot Quartz concept, shown at the 2014 Paris motor show.

The short and blurry video also teased us with a brief shot of the car’s sides—the wheels’ arches and side skirts are clad in black plastic. This gives the 3008 a more SUV-like appearance. Topping the sides aesthetics are new alloy wheels filling the wheel arches.

The video might not be able to show the car’s interior, but it should have a futuristic cockpit as previewed by Peugeot’s i-Cockpit last month. This features a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display.

Previous reports said the new 3008 would be revealed at the Paris motor show this coming September, but it looks like we might see this sooner than that. France’s Automobile Magazine is reporting it will be revealed on May 23.
